Boomkat Product Review:
Northerner forges an engrossing diversion into dubbed-out and rhythmic electronics with 'I Am On Your Side' for Saltaire's Home Assembly Music. If you know him from the ambient guitar works on 2009s 'The Ridings' 2CD or early releases on Misplaced and Hibernate, this album may come as a shock - but let's be fair, there's only so much soporific ambience a man can take before he's driven to the eternal kip! It's not a wholesale departure, but it is a fairly radical one, from the subtle Arthur Russell-sampling dub lope of 'Hey Come On, It's Love' to the heartwarming deep House melancholy of 'Health and Safety' and even slo-mo Electro on 'Line Noise' or Balearic disco on 'Whistleblower'. But fear not, sleepy pastoral types, his Vini Reilly-esque guitar is still at the core of the album, it's just used in different ways, sometimes lending tender strokes to supple disco grooves or sometimes taking centre stage against crisp, minimalist machine rhythms, but always with that sensitivity to soulful emotion. Fans of owt from Sandro Perri to aXXo, Hood or Robin Guthrie should be very pleasantly surprised by this.
